Voting’s closed over at Fiction Express for this week so it’s time for me to share my thoughts on the latest chapter of Sharon Gosling’s Rémy Brunel and the Ocean of Light. Please be aware there are spoilers ahead for the chapter.
I started reading this new chapter worried about what was going to happen to Rémy and who had burst into Desai’s place. I was really relieved to discover that Rémy’s injuries weren’t life threatening, but even though I’d voted for it to be Abernathy’s men I still wasn’t sure that this was a good thing for Rémy, Thaddeus and the others. It certainly didn’t seem to be a good thing for poor J, his treatment was absolutely horrible. I thought it was clever that Abernathy was also aware of Rémy’s curse and her parents’ story, it feels like all of these plot threads are going to twist together in a great finale. I love the continuing hints of romance between Rémy and Thaddeus, I’m a real sucker for a happy ending and I hope that by the end of the book they find a way to overcome their obvious differences.
This week’s vote options didn’t seem quite as hard as last week’s, I think this is a very good thing – I don’t think I could have coped with making another impossible decision. My choice this week would be for Rémy to go with Abernathy, because I’m hoping that The Professor has a secret plan.
What did you think of the new chapter? Do you agree with my choice?
